Should I get this

I'm in the market for a new laptop. I've been using my little Samsung NC10 netbook for my portable computing needs but as I'm moving about a bit more I'm getting a bit tired of the small screen and sluggish performance.

I want a small laptop (13-14" screen) which also has a bit of grunt. I've had a browse around and think I've found a good one:

Sony Vaio VPCEA3S1E/B:


i3 370M (2.4GHz)
ATI radeon 5470 512MB GPU
14" screen

The amazon price is £702 but with Sony's vat back deal it I can claim and get it for about £598.

What do you think? Is there a better deal out there?

(UK remember)

edit: Main uses are office/web browsing/web development but need decent multitasking. Some light gaming (will this run CoD black ops ok?)

It should do fine for your uses. I wouldn't expect much in terms of gaming performance, i.e. if you like high settings, but it should get the job done.
